These Avocado Corn and Black Bean Taquitos are a great addition to your favorite Mexican dishes or your next appetizer tray!
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today is definitely one of my favorite food holidays. One of the reasons we love traveling to Mexico is the cuisine and it has been way too long since I've gotten some real authentic Mexican food. You know – the ooey gooey kind where you know it's the perfect amount of cheese and filling/topping and you're just super satisfied (and carb-filled) after?
My love for corn tortillas has increased ten fold over the years because of our travels. And one of my favorite things to make with corn tortillas are taquitos. A) They're delicious. B) I hate the ones that you can buy in the store because the fillings suck or they're spicy.
But these avocado corn and black bean taquitos?
SO good. Not spicy and they're filled with good tasting and good for you ingredients. And they are the perfect thing to enjoy with this black bean dip or this zesty guacamole. And when you're all done, you can top off the meal with these three nut Mexican wedding cookies!
- 10 Corn Tortillas
- 1/2 Cup Black Beans
- 1/2 Cup Corn
- 1/2 Cup Cheese
- 1/2 Tsp Lime Juice
- 1 Tsp Cumin
- 1 Tsp Chili Powder
- Pinch of Salt
- Oil for frying
- Preheat oil in a shallow pan.
- Combine all of the ingredients excluding the tortillas.
- Spoon 2 Tbsp of the mixture into the middle of a corn tortilla and roll up. Use a toothpick to keep it tight.
- Set it in the oil to fry with the seam down until all sides are golden brown.
- Repeat with the rest of the tortillas.
If these aren't the perfect way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, I don't know what is. I'm pretty sure these will be enjoyed, devoured and served with this raspberry lemon mocktail I shared yesterday in our household. And of course some chips and salsa. But who am I kidding – every day is chips and salsa day!
